“They were eager to do this,” said State Film Commissioner Donne Dawson. “The film industry is critical to the economy in Hawai’i and we always want to make sure, particularly when they are shooting on state lands such as at Mānoa Falls, they understand and appreciate the importance of caring for our natural and cultural resources. Jason obviously understands this, so this was not a big ask of him and Warner Bros.”
